There is a very interesting story behind the development and launch of iOS.

In 2005, Steve Jobs gave two options to his development team at Apple: Either shrink the Mac or enlarge the Pod. 

Thankfully, his team chose the 1st option, and then the entire team led by Scott Forstall worked on the existing operating system of Mac computers and made it optimized for deploying on smartphones.

This way, the first ever iOS version was launched in 2007 for the first ever iPhone by Steve Jobs, and this literally changed everything for the mobile industry.

At the time of writing, iOS 16 is the latest version of iOS (April 2023), with the next version expected to be launched in September-October. Already 81% of all iPhones in the world are using the latest version (iOS 16), with the numbers growing at a fast pace.

Last year, 900 million iPhone users with the iOS operating system spent a whopping $86 billion purchasing applications and in-app purchases such as avatars, gaming credits, products/services, and more. 

Although Android has 3 times more users, its spending capacity is almost 50% less than iOS users.

This translates to an exciting opportunity for entrepreneurs, who are planning to launch iOS apps across different niches: More and more iOS users are spending money on applications, and this is the opportunity to expand and grow your business by leveraging the reach and spending capacity of iOS users.

In this blog, we will share the top 10 iOS app development companies, which can help you with iOS app development, and kickstart your venture with confidence!
